VP Far East
I am Saleem Sandha, settled in Tokyo Japan, son of Late Abdul Ghaffar Moosa Sandha, born in 1964 at Karachi Pakistan. I have studied in Karachi during my whole school life and obtained a Diploma in Electrical Engineering. Around 30 years ago, I went to Japan and got Japanese wife, and I am blessed with 3 children.
I was always facing problems about finding Halal foods and Masjids when I first came to japan. There was a very low understanding towards foreigners and Muslims at that time, and I’ve went through a lot of hardships. However, I thought that I should take this as an opportunity to help the fellow Muslims myself. After years of broadening my network and studying about Japanese rules and regulations, I was able to launch a Masjid in the Yashio city, the neighboring city of Tokyo. Named it “Jamea Masjid Yashio Japan”. Alhamdulillah after long efforts negotiating with Japanese government, I became the first one who got the Islamic Religious Corporation license for our Masjid in Saitama prefecture for legal permission of preaching of Islam in Japan. For 15 years I have served as the chairman of the Masjid and the Muslim community of Yashio city.
25 years ago, I have launched a company in Tokyo for car exports and local business called J.P. International Co, Ltd. After that, I was often in need of travelling to different countries where I export the cars to. However, I found it difficult to travel overseas with Pakistani passport. That’s why I became as a Japanese citizen around 21 years ago. There were very few people who became as a Japanese National at that time.
As my second business and new challenge, 5 years ago, I have launched a travel agency company in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. It was a new industry for me in third country. Involving in tourism and Malaysian culture was a great experience for myself.
I have gained knowledge of different fields in the world over the years, and I took the advantage of my own experience to start another mission to promote Halal in Japan. I am from Jetpur Memon Jamat and our association is called Jetpur Memon Association “JMA”. That’s why I registered my mission’s name as Japan Muslim Access “JMA” (a Halal certification issuance body) at legal affairs bureau Japan on March 2017.
Recently this year 2018, I joined International Memon Organization (IMO) as the board member and as the vice president of Japan. I am very grateful towards Mr. Asif Majeed Panawala, the president of Jetpur Memon Association Karachi Pakistan for introducing me to IMO.
I always thanks to Almighty Allah الله سبحانه وتعالى for choosing me and giving me chances that I can do for Muslim ummah as charity concept and preaching of Islam in Japan. May Allah always bless everyone involved in charity volunteering in our Memon Community. آمین ثم آمین

The name of Mr. Iqbal Advani son of Abdul Aziz, a graduate and young businessman, is not new in field of social work.

He says, after helping and serving community, he instantly used to get incredible mental and spiritual satisfaction. Since then he continued his social & welfare work and kept on helping needy people time to time including help to needy families for wedding of their daughter. Apart from various small social org of community, he joined MASA (Memon Associaion Saudi Arabia) in 2008 and become its youngest Patron in 2010. Needless to mention, that he was the biggest financial supporter of MASA. Undoubtedly, MASA has progressed very well under his valuable patronage. He always stood by MASA in various activities and Some time he sponsored full event (get together of memon community more than 400 persons grand dinner for male & female) at a quality restaurant of Jeddah. In view of his enthusiasm towards social & welfare work, he is also chosen and nominated as MEMBER of SUPREME COUNCIL of All Pakistan Memon Federation (APMF). Due to his business in various countries of Middle East, he has a good PR, therefore, he was offered a position of Vice President of IMO for Middle East Chapter that he accepted and immediately constituted a committee of social workers for Middle East. No doubt Middle East Chapter is doing very well under his patronage. Haj Committee of IMO also did excellent job during last Haj. Iqbal Advani has gone one step ahead and has also become Patron of IMO. He is now not only VP of Middle East Chapter of IMO but he is also a respectable Patron of IMO.
